Dear Patients, Residents and Families
COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

A Recent Rehabilitation Patient Testimonial
"I had a very pleasant experience at Langdon. Staff was attentive; facility was clean and neat! "- Joanne M
Joanne was kind to write down all of the staff members names who cared for her that she loved dearly, we appreciate that Joanne! Best wishes for continued recovery!
The care at Langdon has been very good! The LNA's have all been good, extremely caring in making sure I was comfortable and clean!
Everything was fantastic!
I thought everything was fantastic! Everyone did everything they could to try to help. I would recommend to anybody. I was against this from the start (I wanted home) but I'm glad I came.
Dedicated, caring staff
My parents retired to their home region of Northern New England, and have been happy to be at Langdon Place in their later years. The excellent care they receive from its dedicated staff has seen them through a number of medical crises. That is all to the good for them, and is equally important for me and my siblings. Our family is close in heart but each of us children live far away in other regions of the country. And while we take turns visiting the folks throughout the year , it is a great comfort for us to know that they are receiving high quality, friendly care while we are back at our own homes. I've come to personally know many among the Langdon staff and enjoy the close working relationship I have with them regarding my parents' care, especially since I hold their medical powers of attorney. The staff does a wonderful job keeping me informed about their needs and care decisions in a way that shows they truly care for my parents as people, not just patients.
Best wishes for continued wellness!
My therapists all worked with me and made me use all available needs and energy to improve my ability to walk. The nurses were all attentive and helpful!"
- Norman L
I had a bad fall and have spent two and a half months at Langdon. They have been very good to me here. I certainly have never gone hungry!! I got help when I needed it. I recommend this place for anyone who wants to rest and get healed up!

We are so grateful!
We are so grateful for the responsive and compassionate care here! Thank you for getting Mom back on her feet again.

"Physical Therapy is Fabulous!"
10 out of 10!
If I had to rate Langdon Place on a scale of 1-10, I would have to say 10. The staff are considerate and kind. The furnishings are homelike. The grass and scrubs are manicured and beautiful. The care is very similar to hospital care. Medication is professionally dispensed. The main care is occupational and physical therapy. The therapists are very knowledgeable of their trade and can get the patients back on their feet even better than they were before.
Recent assisted living respite testimonial:
"It is with mixed emotions that I am departing Langdon Place to go home to my own apartment in Bellows Falls, VT. The staff was always very kind, thoughtful, willing to listen and anticipate my needs and those of other residents. It has been a pleasure to spend the last several weeks with both the residents and staff who were happy to be here and a pleasure to be around. I was impressed with the activity staff and the amenities such as the shopping trips and the lunch bunch. If and when the time comes I will be happy to say, I am back." - Hazel G

"Smiles in their eyes"
I was so happy to be home. It would not have been possible without the wonderful care of Langdon. Everyone I came into contact with had, "smiles in their eyes". Thank for providing access to my vaccine!
"Everyone I saw was very friendly and very helpful. Pros all the way. Someone was always here when I needed some help! A+"
Our father was a resident at Langdon Place for four months with several health issues. Langdon Places’ staff was incredibly caring and knowledgeable, helping our family navigate uncertain times during the pandemic and keeping us informed while he was transported back and forth to the hospital. There are scheduled weekly calls, emails and personal phone calls with any changes to the facility. While we weren’t able to see him in person, the staff would place him in front of a window so we could see him and talk on the phone and on his birthday, a staff member came out and met us in the parking lot to bring his gifts to him. The care he received from nursing to rehab was exceptional, and we’ll be forever grateful for his time at Langdon Place."

5 Star Google Review
My husband came here after a hospitalization, and we were very happy with the care he received. He did not always like having a roommate, but Langdon tried their best to find someone compatible. The concern and care of all staff was fantastic. And the food is quite good.
- E. F.
My first choice for rehab
I have had 3 short stays at Langdon Place for rehab. The rehab staff was awesome, kind and patient with me. They made the exercises fun! The nursing staff was equally as awesome. Most remembered me from my previous stays and it was like coming home again. This was always my first choice for rehab and I would recommend it to everyone for whatever your needs are.
I am grateful
I am grateful to all staff members for my stay. I was in bad shape and needed care. I received care from dedicated nursing staff and aides, training from occupational therapy and physical therapists, and good advice. It was an opportunity to learn a lot.
